I have always both loved and hated TV shows about people who find themselves marooned on deserted islands. Airlines are outAfter long study and research, I have become convinced that being ship-wrecked is definitely the way to go, if you're planning to be cast away on a deserted island. Even though Lost would have you believe differently, the chance of actually crashing on the island, or at least close enough to salvage any supplies, is a real long-shot. Besides, no self-respecting flight attendant would let would let you board with even minimal survival equipment, and no airline allows tools in your carry-on - especially machetes, saws, pry-bars and their like. Island GetawayPalm Island, The Grenadines - Palm Island (PLI), St Vincent and the Grenadines [get directions]An idyllic tropical resort hideaway, situated near the southern tip of St. Practical items to have on a deserted islandIf you were ever really stranded on a deserted island, you might want to have a few things along with you. Item 1: The top item on my list would be Mike Holmes and his crew, from the hit home renovation show, Holmes on Homes. Barring Holmes and his crew though, I'd opt for a good set of tools: a sturdy hammer or two, both a Swede and straight saw, a hatchet, and an axe.
Item 2: The second item would be a medi-center, preferably one with an excellent trauma facility, and a doctor, and staff who are all well versed in curing tropical diseases, and treating insect bites. As that might be tricky to arrange in advance, I'd settle for a first aid kit with several scalpels, some good, sharp needles and suture material or thread, a large bottle of salt tablets, a water purifying kit or bleach tablets, rolled gauze for bandages, alcohol wipes, and sulfa powder.
Items 3 - 5: Though it might be handy to have an assault rifle, a scope, an unlimited supply of ammo, and an armorer to fix it when it jams up, especially if the island was home to wild pigs or, heaven forfend, a tiger, I'd probably do fine with a machete, a couple of sharp knives and a whetstone. Attaching one of the knives to a length of bamboo, or a straight branch would create a dandy fishing spear, and a sharpened and fire-hardened pole would make a useful medium range defensive weapon. The best gear to take alongItem 6: The next thing on my wish list would have to be fishing gear. Item 10: The last thing on my list, but probably one of the most important, is a supply of water-proof matches, or a lighter and lighter fluid. VENZKHVAM 4 years ago from Milk way galaxy, trying to find a more adventurous place in another galaxy with my great followers Dear RedElf,I am a great fan of Tom Hanks two movies "cast away" and The Terminal. Alladream74 4 years ago from Oakland, California Your hub reminds me so much of the Tom Hanks movie,Cast Away. Brent Stone 4 years ago Love it, all you would need is a good hunting knife and you could make everything you could possibly need.
RedElf 4 years ago from Canada Author You know, Brent, it never once occurred to me to bring a lap top - or a shortwave radio, either.
Dolores Monet 4 years ago from East Coast, United States Sorry, Red, but this sounds like cheating. RedElf 4 years ago from Canada Author Stevennix, thanks so much - I never thought of flares, but maybe they would be in the emergency kit?
RedElf 4 years ago from Canada Author Thanks, Mike - glad you didn't find the same old same old!
RedElf 4 years ago from Canada Author Thanks, tlw, so glad you enjoyed the article - it was great fun to research and write. Staci-Barbo7 4 years ago from North Carolina Red Elf, I feel certain it was merely an oversight, but you forgot CHOCOLATE!!!


RedElf 4 years ago from Canada Author Rats - that's right - gotta get me a solar cell powered fridge for the chocolate!
RedElf 4 years ago from Canada Author adrienne2, you are certainly right about the need to find water.
SuneXtra 4 years ago from Centurion, Gauteng, South Africa Wow, the pictures you have on your hub would actually make me want to get stranded on an island! RedElf 4 years ago from Canada Author I'd rather have an attractive man or two, but I doubt that eye-candy would help anyone survive, so I didn't bother to put them on the list. Bitingtruths 4 years ago from Mumbai how about taking a copy of 'story of philosophy' by will Durant. RedElf 4 years ago from Canada Author I have never really thought of philosophy as entertainment, but, I suppose if one were stranded long enough, it might become appealing. RedElf 4 years ago from Canada Author Interesting choices - I guess I'd rather have chocolate, and several reams of paper. RedElf 4 years ago from Canada Author Nifty list, Wolf lover14 - sounds like Phil will be getting quite a workout! RedElf 4 years ago from Canada Author tammyswallow, thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. DanielNeff 4 years ago from Asheville, NC Definitely thought-provoking.How about a laptop, a solar-powered generator, and a satellite dish for internet? From the fun and family-oriented offerings such as The Castaways, Swiss Family Robinson, and Gilligan's Island, to the more serious Robinson Crusoe, and the downright spooky Lost, castaways on deserted islands have fared well or poorly depending on the whims of their writers. I love the idea of finding solitude in some exotic paradise, but I hate the idea of being stuck there completely alone.
Islands tend to be surrounded by really deep water, so unless you're a diver, you won't be retrieving much gear from the cargo hold. Actually, you would probably like to have lots of things along with you, as well as a few friends to keep you company. I know they'd be able to erect an amazing shelter in no time - and it would well-surpass anyone's building code. I would be happy to compromise on some UV protective long-sleeved shirts and long pants, and a pair of sturdy hiking boots. In real life, however, the ubiquitous little blood-sucker infests almost every area in the world.
A far more practical addition to my supplies would be a flint and steel in a waterproof container.
Even some waterproof matches and a couple of energy bars can help if you are stranded for a time. I enjoyed writing it, so I really appreciate people stopping by and commenting :D The terminal was a very sweet and funny movie. I'm not a good hunter, have never learned how to fish, and I don't weigh much so I wouldn't last long. That's the one big turnoff for me about the whole stranded on an island thing - not sure about the Globe Trotters, but they'd sure be fun to have along.VENZKHVAM, thanks so much. I think the one thing I would place at the top is a water proof gas lighter-or anything that can start a fire.


Silly me!Alladream74, I probably should move the matches and lighter higher up on the list.anglnwu, that would work for me, too! I guess, with some solar batteries, you could stay in contact with the world - but then you wouldn't really be stranded, at least, not for long.Ah, there's a lot to be said for keeping a smudge going, Edna & Earl.
Four Seasons would be great, but I WOULD take the wait-staff, too - and a vat or so of insect repellent! I like this Hub; it centers around a philosophical question many of us have pondered at least briefly at one time or another.
I don't know that I would make it either, but it's interesting to play the "what-if" game.Michael Graves, I am so glad you enjoyed the hub. Thanks for commenting.brandasaur, that's an interesting choice - great for keeping in touch?SuneXtra, those islands wouldn't be too bad, I'm thinking. If I were ever stranded on a deserted island, it would probably only be a handful of hours before I deliriously began searching for a McDonalds or something.
I totally embrace the idea of being released from housework, which can be boring at the best of times, and onerous on a beautiful day, but I'm not crazy about the necessity of having to forage for food every day. The protective shirt and pants would help minimize bug bites, and protect me from the worst of the sun. Then I could light as many fires as I needed to, and never have to worry about running out of matches.
It's far more likely that you'll be stranded in an airport terminal, though, and that's a whole other ball game. All items store inside a black hardshell all weather carrying case.Sun Protective Clothing, Hatsnozone clothing ltd. Selecting items for your ship wreck seems like it should be limited to, say one tool, or if it's ten things, ten actual items. I do think that your list is a good one (assuming, of course, that one is not allowed to "cheat" and bring a sat-phone, a waterproof protective case for said sat-phone, and extra batteries for said sat-phone). Funny thing is, having a laptop or radio is sort of useless if you don't know your location, so a portable GPS would be sort of handy, maybe an attractive women and you can keep the GPS.
To keep the sun off my face and head, I could weave a broad-brimmed hat from palm fronds or grasses, and ditto for a parasol or sun-shade. Planning doesn't help much if you are really stranded - you are at the mercy of whatever you can find, and hopefully, it will be more than a few bags of peanuts.Thanks for stopping by and commenting brennawelker. You are so right about the boredom and solitude - that would be what would inevitably finish me off! But you didn't ever doubt the power in my frail arms when you compiled the quiz :)Great humour.
I have a Bible in my bag all the time, so it never occurred to me to name it as a choice - good point. I was happy to see the actor from lost show up on Hawaii 5-0 - he seems to have a thing for tropical islands - glad somebody finally "found" him!
